ignwl wax uminilurl ungodly; but with
theuptltiiiHiu of youth I believed that
' aiy (iioquf n would uon reduce It lo a
state of Innocuous virtue. Well, the day
for my inukluri aertuon enme around,
and the church was well filled, 1 was
never more eloquent than 1 was that
day, and before I got half through my
aormon I felt quite confident of convert
ing the whole town in short order, Just
then 1 suw a tardy brother enter the
church and weave uncertainly up the
middle aisle. It required no second
glance to see that, full as the church
was that morning, he was still fuller. I
wus in hopes that he would quietly drop
Into one of the seuts near the door, but
my hopes wore in vain.
"By walking up both sides of the aisle
he gradually got to the front pews, right
under the pulpit. It then occurred to
me that 1 might prevent an unpleasant
cone by addressing a soothing and pleas
ant remark to my bacchanalian brother.
So 1 scid In sympathetic tones, '1 pur
col ve thut the brother is sick. Perhaps
if he were to allow the sexton to accom

recover in the open air.' I felt like con
gratulating myself on my diplomacy,
but the 'sU'k' brother seemed to mis
understand my good intentions. Bracing
uinisolf uncertainly uguinst a pew, and
gazing at me with a look of pained and
indignant surprise, he remarked in thick
but audible tones: 'It's a wonner to me

left the pulpit I had given upull thoughts

A correspondent of The Revue Scicn
tlflque vouches for the following story:
lor aliout twenty years he was in the
habit of visiting two or three times each
year a farm where was kept a flock of
geese, numbering from thirty to thirty
live in the early part of the winter, and
in the spring four or five, loft for breed
ing purposes: these also generally being
killed a few months later, after the new
broods Intel attained their growth.
in the month of July, 1HII2, on a feast
day. the farmer and his men being ab
sent, the geese were forgotten, and were
attacked by dogs, which killed the most
of them. The next evening at twilight
the farmer thought (hey must have been
attacked a second time, lie found them
flying about In their pen, much fright
ened, but die dogs were nowhere to be
seen. The next day this terror reap
peared at tho same hour as it did on the
following day, and from that time on.
The corresiKindent of The Review had
forgotten this fact when, ton years later.
he chanced to be'on the farm one even
ing, and heard the cackling of the up
parontly frightened geese. When he
asked for an explanation he was told

they had been attacked by the dogs, thut .
thore had been no repetition of the at-
tack, and thut the flock had been re-

times. If this story is well authenticated

Down at the Elks' social the other night
Luke Hchouloraft, the minstrel, told a
characteristic story. It wasof a jolly old
Irishman, who was addicted to a very
free use or the bottu, much to the dis
gust of his faithful wife. She knew that
he wbb "going it" at too fust a pace and
she uppeuled to their priest to pull him
up. In view of the circumstances this
priest thought he wus justified in employ
ing one or two fairy tales, so wlion he
met Pat on the street he called him aside
"Pat. you're drinking too hard. Now,
you know tiiat you can depend upon
what 1 say, and I have no hesitancy in
tolling you that if you keep an as you are
doing you win change into a rut,
This awful prediction annoyed Pat
greatly, and when he went home he told
his wife about it. Of course, she worked
it up and told him the priest was un
doubtedly right, Pat was deep in thought
for some time. Ho did hate very much
to give up bis toddy, but the rat idea was
too much for him. I' imtlly he said:

A Diamond Expert's Views, .
I always Bmile when 1 see articles In
the papers telling people how they may
know a diamond and how to discover an
imitation by some handy and simple
test. It ain't be done. The mon who
sell false diamonds as genuine ones make
their money by palming them off on
smart people who have some worthless
rule of thumb test lo apply to them
There is only one way to judge diamonds,
and that is by long experience, during
which they have been under the eye
constantly, and have been handled every
day . Diamond cxpertB are still valuable
men. They would not be if there was a
simple test that any one could apply to
the stones. St. Louis Olobe-Demoorut. .

Conaervative Mean of the Turklith Wo
men Tliomai Stevens' Views.
Ill all countries the most conservative part
of the population are the women, and par
ticularly isthis the case in the east - A man
may change his religion, his politics, bis race
and social prejudices, and sever bis alle
giance to king and country, even in the Bal
kan states, where these matters assume he
roic Importance. The Oriental woman, how
ever, opposes with a conservatism that is
sublimely tenacious, all change, all progress
in these directions, and stranger still, all
tendency toward her own emancipation.
If a movement were set on foot to do away
with the yashmak (laoe veil) and the life of
seclusion led by women in Turkey, the
Turkish woman herself would oppose the
innovation stronger than anybody. She re
gards her position in society from a very
different standpoint to our ideas. To us she
seems a prisoner, fettered and trammeled by
the chains of a barbarous social system that
persists in treating her as an animal who is
the property of her husband.
If we could we would take her by the hand.
remove her yashmak, take away the lattice
work from the harem windows, and give her
the same freedom as our own women enlov.
We would introduce her to the ball room, to
tne arawlng room, permit her to mingle and
converse with gentlemen and to become a
social being. In doing ail this we should, of
course, be governed toy the kindest motive.
no more, no less, than that of securing for tho
l urmsn woman social treotlom and elevation.
and, consequently, according to our ideas,
Nothing is more certain, however, than
that the Turkish woman would raise her
bands In virtuous horror at such a proposi
tion. She doesn't consider herself a slave or
a prisoner, by any means. She believes that
she enjoys a far greater measure of freedom
than the European or American lady. The
barrier that separates her from the world at
large, gives her a little world, all her own,
to do as she pleases in. Whilst her more un
fortunate sisters of the west are forever under
the critical and censorious eyes of the oppo
site sex, sue is able to anap her fin
gers behind the veil of mystery that no man
dare lift without her permission. Not even
her own husband dare presume to violate
her incognito in public, nor dare he invade
her apartments, in his own house, without
permission. All this the Turkish woman re
gards as real freedom, which she would in
no wise change for the social oondition of
the women of Frangistan. Our sympathy
for interference in her behalf she neither
asks nor desires. -
But despite all this conservatism and aver
sion to change, the Turkish woman reserves
to herself a woman's prerogative to be just a
wee bit inconsistent with herself. Change
she will not llBten to for a moment yet she
has changed, and keeps on changing. But it
is only to the matter of indoor dress, only a
little matter of feminine apparel within the
precincts of her own exclusive world. Here
the Turkish lady has of late seen fit to imi
tate the modes of Paris and Vienna, whilst
for outdoor costumes she still clings to the
old feridji and veil, Thomas Stevens iu

Use of Ethereal Whisky.
According to The Lanoet, in certain dis
tricts lu the north of Ireland ether is
largely used as au intoxicant. A special
kiud of ether is prepared for drinking
purposes, ana its success in supplanting
whisky appears to be owing to its cheap
ness, for a person can obtain for a penny
sufficient of the poteut fluid to intoxicate
him. It may be here mentioned that the
so called chloric ether, which, under its
newer name of spirits of chloroform, is
prescribed to give a pleasant flavor to
nauseous draughts, has often been used
as a stimulant by inebriates who have had
acoeastoit. It is not ether, but consists
of a solution of chloroform diluted in
nineteen parts of rectified spirit. With
regard to ether sold for driiikiug pur
poses, it is asserted that the excise
authorities have been applied to, but they
have no power to coutrol its Bale.
